About the Humpty Dumpty Foundation
Having now raised $55 million and continuing to make a significant impact on the lives of sick and injured children at children’s hospitals and health service centres in every state of Australia, the Humpty Dumpty Foundation was established over 25 years ago by Founder and Executive Chairman, Paul Francis OAM.
The Humpty Dumpty Foundation has enjoyed long-time support from its Patron, television journalist Ray Martin AM, Olympian Jane Flemming OAM – Ambassador/Board Member and Wallaby great Phil Kearns, Ambassador and Founder of the Humpty Balmoral Burn.
Through annual fund-raising initiatives including the Good Egg lunch, Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn and the Great Humpty Ball along with the support of generous individual and corporate donors, the Humpty Dumpty Foundation purchases, on average, over 330 pieces of medical equipment each year. Each piece of medical equipment requested is stringently assessed by the Humpty Dumpty Foundation’s medical sub-committee made up of senior medical administrators, clinical specialists and former leader of the New South Wales Liberal Party, Kerry Chikarovski.
It also provides funding for numerous special projects including a paediatric fellowship (graduate doctor training), a part-time Nurse Educator for training in emergency paediatrics, a part-time Bio Mechanical Engineer and weekly visits by the “Clown Doctors” and the magical Fairy Gardens (which encourage and promote healing).
To date, 260 hospitals across the nation have benefited from the life-saving medical equipment received specifically to care for children and babies provided by the Humpty Dumpty Foundation and its amazing “Good Egg” supporters. The number of hospitals the Humpty Dumpty Foundation supports across Australia continues to grow with the charity currently helping 189 hospitals in NSW, 31 in QLD, 16 in VIC, 8 in WA, 8 in SA, three in TAS as well as two in the NT and one in the ACT.
